Background information: I've been separated from my husband for just over a year. I have a friend that I share a very special relationship with (he is also still married with two young children), but our circumstances keep us apart. I'm just about ready to move out on my own and have a lot of mixed feelings about it.
In my dream I'm at an airport with my friend and he tells me he'll be back in a minute. He returns with his wife and kids and they take off in a plane together. I'm upset about this and I also get in a plane and take off. I start to gain elevation when suddenly I realize I don't know how to fly a plane. The plane starts to slowly drift downward. It lands very softly on the water and then I get out and walk across the water to a dock. I start to walk toward a house and I hear my friend calling my name. I try to hide from him -- and then I wake up.
